1/4 cup Land O Lakes® Butter
1 (10.5-ounce) package (6 cups) miniature marshmallows
3 tablespoons creamy peanut butter
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 teaspoon green food color
1 (6-ounce) package (4 cups) chow mein noodles
1 tablespoon red cinnamon candies
8 small gumdrops, halved
*Substitute 4 cups rice noodles.
**Substitute 15 pretzel nuggets.
Combine butter and marshmallows in 3-quart saucepan. Cook over low heat, stirring constantly, 4-6 minutes or until smooth. Stir in peanut butter, vanilla and food color; mix well. Add noodles; quickly stir until well coated.
Place a large sheet of waxed paper onto counter. Lightly spray a tablespoon measuring spoon with no-stick cooking spray. Drop heaping tablespoonfuls of mixture onto waxed paper. Shape mixture into trees with lightly greased fingers, working quickly so mixture does not harden.
Immediately decorate trees with candies using cinnamon candies for ornaments and gumdrop halves for trunk. Let stand until firm. Store in loosely covered container between sheets of waxed paper.
- If cinnamon candies do not stick, use a dab of honey or light corn syrup as glue.
- For a gift idea, wrap trees in decorative plastic food wrap and tie with a ribbon.
